within 200 feet of a church.

than enforcing this ordinance would
be its repeal.

ITS COMIC SUPPLEMENT
Evidently the editorials of the
Manufacturers' News are written
some time before they appear in
print, for in this week's issue there
is an editorial endorsing Judge Elbert

"He typifies the progressive in
dustrial spirit of the country," the
magazine states. "He has always
kept in touch with the trend of

Gary was recently indicted by a
grand jury in Youngstown, 0.,
